Salud Talks Episode 41: Why Are Nurses the Key to Infection Control? – Featuring IASN President Gloria E. Barrera

September 27, 2022

The pandemic revealed long-standing gaps in infection control knowledge and understanding among the frontline healthcare workforce.

This is why CDC launched Project Firstline, a training and education collaborative designed to ensure all healthcare workers, no matter their role or educational background, have the infection control knowledge and understanding they need and deserve to protect themselves, their patients, and their coworkers.

Salud America! at UT Health San Antonio, in partnership with the National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) and CDC Project Firstline, brings you a three-part episode podcast series, “Behind the Mask,” to explore infection control through three specific and diverse healthcare lenses: patient navigators/health screeners/community health workers/promotoras; nurses; and rural healthcare workers.

In this second special Episode 41 of the Salud Talks Podcast, two frontline healthcare workers discuss the role of nurses in infection control.
